Relative Flowering Time, AA, A, B
Is there a comprehensive listing of the relative beginning flowering times of Dahlias, especially larger flowered varieties. I want to select a group of varieites for growing in 2 and 5 gal containers to market "in flower" to retail stores. My criteria are largest flowers, medium height = 2.5 - 3.5 ft, and having none that flower significantly later than the others. It is best that they are marketed in flower and varieities that are later cannot be sold as early or with the others. For example, Vuurvogel is a great variety, but it flowers significantly later than Kelvin Floodlight, Otto's Thrill, and Babylon Red.
